CMA CGM selects Beihai Shipbuilding for methanol project

CMA CGM has selected Beihai Shipbuilding for a pioneering methanol retrofit project, showcasing the shipyard’s first venture into alternative fuel vessel retrofitting. The agreement involves the installation of methanol propulsion on a CMA CGM container ship.

The move towards methanol as an alternative fuel aligns with the growing trend in the shipping industry, with many container lines opting for this eco-friendly option, albeit primarily in newbuild projects.

CMA CGM and Beihai Shipbuilding initiated their collaborative efforts back in 2018, with a portfolio spanning over 40 vessel projects. The relationship deepened in 2021 when CMA CGM placed an order for ten 5,500 TEU container ships from Beihai Shipbuilding.
